Beautiful setting, wonderful patio, entire restaurant open and airy. Conversation was easy as tables have great spacing. Service very attentive without being intrusive. Menu varied without overwhelming you; a single page handles most tastes I'd guess. Both my guest and I opted for the Reuben, him with regular fries, I chose truffled. Both were excellent and a solid, balanced sandwich, very lean and worth a second visit and repeat order.

Went for a special occasion and really enjoyed the vibe of the place. While it was a special menu and the full brunch menu was not available, there were some good choices and the food was fantastic. The server seemed to have a bit of an attitude, but that happens sometimes. I would definitely go back.

Special menu for Mother’s Day, three courses. I had beef tenderloin for second course, my mother and husband had sea bass, all wonderful. Service was great. We sat outside in an area we had not sat in before. Cool at first in the shade, then we got some sun and warmed up nicely. It was not too crowded, so brunch was enjoyable, like sitting out on your own patio. They had live entertainment also, a guy singing, which they have had before on Sundays. He was good. We enjoy Saint Anne’s.

Loved the atmosphere and the food was excellent. We were a party of 6 and we all enjoyed our separately ordered dishes. The service was a bit slow but I did notice that there were teenagers there enjoying dinner before prom, so I'm sure the event tasked the waitstaff. I would return again.

Having been to Saint Ann before with a family friend and having had great service and food, we were really excited to come back and try it for lunch! When I got called by the reservation the day before, they were very strict about the 15 minute grace period as we were coming in on Cinco de Mayo. When we arrived the following morning (to a nearly empty restaurant), we noticed what seemed to be different tiers of the restaurant. The indoor had nicely set tables, as did most of the patio seating. There was a portion of the patio where the tables were not set and the chairs were wet. The hostess took us out to one of these tiny tables (we were a party of 3) outside of the main patio. When I asked her if we could move inside, she was rude and told me that they did not guarantee any seating despite us having made a reservation. They finally moved us closer to inside at a table that had been set and did not have wet chairs, and the restaurant was not even close to full during our entire brunch. The food was good and I love the ambiance, but the service leads me to say I'm not sure I'll be back.

Reservation with prompt seating. Host was friendly. Table service was prompt with drinks but slow to take order and deliver check. The pork sandwich with side salad was delicious and reasonably priced for this local. Will return.

Saint Ann’s gets 5 stars all around, not only because the food and service were phenomenal, but they also put up with our group. We originally were supposed to be a group of 8, but added one very late and they added a table without a complaint. Our service was great, food was very good. I highly recommend this place!

SA accommodated very graciously our friend's service dog and I truly appreciated that feature. The indoor and outdoor seating is worth the trip. Food was subpar for the price. Our server was the highlight of the morning. If only I could recall her name! She was patient and efficient without being intrusive. We brunched on Sunday, April 28,2019 and she was a brunette. Kudos to you!

This was probably our fourth visit to Saint Ann. We went for the patio because it was a beautiful day. Sadly, we didn’t have a very good experience. In the past, food has been fine, service acceptable, drinks good. Last night we were seated outside, which was wonderful. We were met at our table with a heavy natural gas smell from the fireplaces. It was heavy...and concerning. We sat visiting with our friends and catching up for about 20/30 minutes before we realized no one had even come to our table. We waited a little longer. Then my husband got up and went to the hostess stand to let them know. They said they forgot to let anyone know we were there. Unacceptable. A waitress in the meantime noticed we hadn’t been taken care of and came by. We were not in her section, but she quickly took our drink orders and appetizer order. Drinks were still a little slow, but they did arrive. Food was mediocre. We had scallops, short ribs and chicken fried ribeye. Risotto for the scallops was undercooked and bland. It was just an ok meal. Not quite worth our drive from Rockwall. But we enjoyed the patio (after they turned the gas off) and catching up with our friends. Might try to find a different location for our next patio outing.

Beautiful restaurant and they were so nice and put us outside even though when we made the reservation we forgot to request that. The food and drinks were awesome. Service was a little bit slow I think since they were so busy but I will definitely be back.

I love Saint Ann's and brought a friend to celebrate her birthday.
The waiter brought waters and my friend asked for lemon for her water- he never brought it.

We sat outside and there were empty tables, but it seemed the wait staff was super busy, or maybe shorthanded.
I requested a second mimosa, but it came after we were completely finished eating.

Food was delish, atmosphere is supurb, the service was not up to par this time.

I've been to Saint Ann before and I loved it! This time was pretty good too, but some things were just a bit off. We sat on the patio and the table linens were dirty, including our napkins and silverware. We got a carafe of OJ and you could see red lipstick on it from someone definitely not sitting at our table.

Overall, we still had a good time, it just wasn't up to par.

Our previous visit just a month earlier was nice. This time I requested patio table which we got, but the hostess demanded we sit on the north end with a speaker too loud right behind the table. We were able to move, still under trees and I was pooped
-on by a bird. We moved again to a table with a white cloth (nice) out from under the trees, but surrounded by huge parties making the noise tough to deal with. One person asked for non-alcohol beer which you don’t carry. The other couple asked for a salad to be split between them and it wasn’t. A wine glass delivered was dirty. The brownie in the desert was over cooked. The chicken fried rib-eye was good. This was a disappointing evening, especially compared to our previous visit just a few weeks earlier.

There are wine flights and some interesting cocktails available. The food was good but nothing to write home about. But, that's not why you got to St Ann. You go for the atmosphere and the drinks. Clientele was a little uppity, but that's fine as long as you don't mind the occasional judgmental eye. We had a good time, even with some of the judgements.

They won't seat you unless at least half of your party is there. That's fair but info that would have been good to know before bothering the hostesses, thus writing it on here.

Bathrooms were nice (completely walled and doored instead of partial doors/stalls) but small.


Overall, a good experience in a nice part of town. Might go back some time.

Went for a lunch and it was a perfect place to sit on the enclosed patio and have a few cocktails. I love the look and feel of the restaurant; relaxing enough to feel really comfortable yet upscale enough to feel like you are treating yourself.

We went for Sunday Brunch and they put us on the patio and the music was so loud we couldn’t even talk. If you are going to have music for Sunday Brunch have soft jazz or piano not rock. Our waiter took a long time to wait on us and to take our order.

Our party of 6 was very well accommodated as we dined prior to a concert at the American Airlines Center. The food was great! We had bacon wrapped chicken and jalapeño poppers and Tuna Tartare as our appetizers; both were fantastic! Drink selection is also wonderful as well as the drink quality. Entrees around the table ranged from burgers to scallops to brick chicken and all guests were delighted. It poured down rain the day we were there but we could only imagine how awesome the space is when the patio is open. Thank you for treating your out of town guests so well!
